Happy Thanksgiving

Hi All,
I know I have been MIA again - my daughter was home from Afghanistan for a visit so everything else gets put on the back burner. Meanwhile,  I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner - Wishing abundant blessings for each of you.

Ok - so it's a Just Us Girls Saturday and time for a new color challenge. Vicki is our hostess this week and she's got some great traditional holiday colors for us... Red, Green and White.

Now I KNOW these are Christmas holiday colors but I really, really wanted to try a non-holiday card with the colors so my colors are a bit more jewel toned but I used a Cranberry (red),  Avocado (green) and an Ivory (creamy white). Made a Thanksgiving card for my best friend who moved away (sob). Here's my simple card:

The colors are not quite so deep in real life but I actually had to shoot this photo with my phone as my other camera's battery was dead! SORRY

I worked with pattern, texture, layering and a little copic coloring. Simple layout and design but I think she'll like it!

Now pop over ro our amaaaaaaaaazing design team and check out their inspiration. Hope you'll take a few minutes out of this busy holiday week to play along and color with JUGS.

Every sport pretends to a literature, but people don't believe it of any other sport but their own by Revathi

Love that you chose Thanksgiving instead of Christmas to showcase this color scheme! :) Your coloring is beautiful--love that blinged up bow! :)

PAMMMMM-EEEEE-CAKESSSS! Holy barrow full of goodness, you are back with LIP smackin', colorful delight, girly! Oh, how we've missed your mighty fine talent and winning personality, beauty, et al, but sharing you with your DAUGHTER - well, there are not enough words to acknowledge how much pleasure that is! Hope you gave her some sugar from your cyberiest crafty friends - SUCH an honor to "know" of her/you/her service.... {!} *sniff* Meanwhile, I'll just set back in my chair and smell the APPLES!!! {Ooooow, I'll be skinning and slicing some LATER - it's PIE day!} Thanks, so much, for the joyful visual - it's dandy to have you BACK!!!!! Happy Thanksgiving, dear one!
